Sliding Door Systems for Demanding Industrial Conditions

Understanding the Need for Robust Sliding Door Systems

In environments where conditions are particularly demanding, the need for robust and reliable sliding door systems becomes paramount. Whether it’s an industrial setting, a high-traffic commercial area, or a specialized facility like a shipyard or chemical plant, the sliding door systems must withstand various challenges. These challenges can range from extreme temperatures to high humidity, corrosive environments, and heavy usage.

At Helaform, we specialize in designing and manufacturing sliding door systems that meet these rigorous demands. Our products are crafted with high-quality materials and are tested to ensure they can handle the toughest conditions. This commitment to quality and durability is what sets us apart in the industry.

Materials Matter: Stainless Steel for Corrosive Environments

One of the key factors in ensuring the longevity and reliability of sliding door systems in demanding conditions is the choice of materials. Stainless steel is an excellent option for environments that are prone to corrosion, such as shipbuilding, port facilities, and the food industry. At Helaform, we offer a wide range of stainless steel products manufactured to AISI 304 and AISI 316 L quality standards.

These materials are known for their exceptional resistance to corrosion, making them ideal for use in harsh environments. By choosing stainless steel sliding door systems, you can ensure that your doors will remain functional and aesthetically pleasing for years to come, even in the most challenging conditions.

Top Hanging Track Systems: A Game Changer for Industrial Settings

In industrial settings, the efficiency of movement and ease of access are crucial. Our top hanging track systems are designed to meet these needs by eliminating the need for bottom guide tracks. This design not only makes it easier to move through door openings but also prevents the accumulation of dirt and debris, which can be a significant issue in industrial environments.

With over 40 years of experience in developing and manufacturing sliding track systems, Helaform guarantees a long service life for our products. Our top hanging track systems are tested by the Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT) and come with a 10-year warranty, ensuring you get the best value for your investment.

Ensuring Safety and Stability with Bottom Guides

While top hanging track systems offer numerous advantages, the role of bottom guides should not be overlooked. A suitable bottom guide system should be specified during the door design stage to ensure faultless and safe operation. Bottom guides prevent the bottom of the sliding door from swinging when operated, adding an extra layer of stability and safety.

It’s important to note that bottom guides do not support any weight; their principal purpose is to guide the sliding door’s movement in line with the track. This ensures smooth and reliable operation, even in demanding conditions.

Custom Solutions for Unique Challenges

Every environment has its unique challenges, and a one-size-fits-all approach rarely works. At Helaform, we understand this and offer custom solutions tailored to meet the specific needs of our clients. Whether you need sliding door systems for a high-traffic commercial area or a specialized industrial facility, we can design and manufacture products that meet your exact requirements.

Additionally, our top hanging track systems eliminate the need for bottom guide tracks, which means there is less accumulation of dirt and debris. This design feature makes cleaning during the installation phase much easier, ensuring that your sliding door systems remain functional and efficient from day one.
